When we look for our car keys to go somewhere, nothing else matters. Our drive is such, we cannot do anything else until we find them. We are to seek the Lord with the same fervor. God doesn’t hide from us but is always there. Without realizing it, we sometimes allow things to hide Him from our sight.
The same way our eyeglass prescriptions change from time to time, we must adjust our spiritual eyesight as we go through trials and tribulations. Our intent to find Him in the middle of our circumstances needs to increase so that we remain strong in the Lord. It’s difficult to stand in our trials when we don’t have the assurance of His presence.
We do not seek healing, but the Healer; not the gift, but the Giver; not the provisions, but the Provider; not deliverance, but the Deliverer. When we seek the answer to our prayers and have committed to seeking Jesus, our Lord and Savior, we find confidence in His presence and rest in the knowledge that He heard our petition. We seek and find Him, from glory to glory!
Hosea 10:12 “Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
